50-year-old Mary J Blige Is Reportedly Dating 28-year-old NFL Player Sterling Shepard

Age is just a number, right? Yes! It’s reported that 50-year-old Mary J Blige is dating NFL player Sterling Shepard whose is 28 years old. These old women in Hollywood are obsessed with young dudes and I understand them. They need some fresh blood in their system to rejuvenate them.

We’re told Shepard appeared unfazed and was “dripping in bling” at the soirée, where he posed for photos with the “Just Fine” singer and Hylton.

Shepard, 28, filed for divorce from Iman, 31, on June 7 after nearly four years of marriage and cited irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split in court documents obtained by Page Six.

The NFL star requested joint legal custody of their two daughters. He also requested his house be their children’s primary residence. Notably, he’s also requesting Iman have “supervised parenting time” with the girls.
Despite his divorce battle with his estranged wife, Sterling seems not to give a hoot about the situation he finds himself in—as he’s already allegedly messing around with 50-year-old Mary J Blige.

This is Hollywood and such bizarre romantic relationships are expected.

50-year-old R&B legend, Mary J. Blige has a new handsome man.

Reportedly, newly single NFL player Sterling Clay Shepard is dating 50-year-old Mary J. Blige. The two were spotted getting cozy at a party in New York.

If there’s one thing we know about singer Mary J. Blige, it’s that she is super private about the men in her life. People hardly leak any info about her love life and she’s usually quite private about the whole thing.

But it looks like, she’s done hiding from people because recently she was spotted getting cozy with a man who she is allegedly “seeing.”

Her alleged new man is 28-year-old NFL player Sterling Shepard who was married to model Chanel Iman. It recently became known that Sterling had filed for divorce from wife Chanel Iman in June 2021.

The reason for the divorce is unknown but the two will be sharing custody of their two daughters.

The thing to note is that shortly after the news of their divorce became known, Sterling partied it up with singer Mary J Blige.

Along with many famous celebs, Sterling and Mary J Blige were spotted at Harbor NYC on Friday to celebrate famed stylist Misa Hylton’s birthday. So, what’s making people speculate that Sterling and Mary may have “started” something?

Well, for starters, sources claim that the two were very “cozy” all evening.

What Is Mary J. Blige’s Age?
Mary Jane Blige has lived for 51 years. She was born in the Bronx, New York, on January 11, 1971. She moved around for the first few years of her life before settling in Yonkers. In 2020, she told People that it was “very, very hard” to grow up there.

“I sang a lot. I just sang. It made me feel better,” Blige said. “I’d sing when I woke up and when I went to sleep, and it made me feel great… It was hard because of the setting. A lot of people were hurting and trying to stay alive, and the place was just awful. All I can say is that. Everyone did what they had to do in order to stay alive.”

At age 17, Blige recorded a version of “Caught Up in the Rapture” by Anita Baker. The song was picked up by Uptown Records. The record label signed Blige, and she sang backup until her first solo album, “What’s the 411?” came out in 1992. Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs was one of the producers of the album, which did very well in the market.
